FRIDAY 6 SEPTEMBER // Doors open 6pm // Film Starts 7:30pm
We’re kicking off the 60s weekend celebrations this year with an unmissable screening of Midnight Cowboy. This cult classic was ground breaking for its time and was not without it controversy.
Convinced of his irresistible appeal to women, Texas dishwasher Joe Buck (Jon Voight) quits his job and heads for New York City, thinking he'll latch on to some rich dowager. New York, however, is not as hospitable as he imagined, and Joe soon finds himself living in an abandoned building with a Dickensian layabout named Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). The two form a rough alliance, and together they kick-start Joe's hustling career just as Ratso's health begins to deteriorate.
